Are you a grandparent raising a grandchild? You are not alone! According
to the US Census, there are over 2 million children being raised solely
by grandparents and other relatives, and that number is rising!
The Grandparents Raising Children Support Group is a free, ongoing weekly
support group open to any grandparent in the Ocean/Monmouth County area,
and is intended to help address the many unique challenges faced by "grandfamilies";
such as legal and financial issues, as well as relational ones. In addition
to weekly support group meetings, once monthly "family dinners"
will provide an opportunity for further support and include educational
programming, not only for grandparents, but for the children under their care.
- MEETINGS: Every Wednesday, 10:30am - 12:30pm
- PLACE: The Center for Healthy Living, 198 Prospect St, Lakewood, NJ
Registration is not required.
